MEDIA APPEARANCE: Guest on the "Underrated Podcast" loving on "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"
Through my collaborations with the fine folks at the "Feelin' Film Podcast," I've become an active member of their Facebook discussion group of fans, fellow podcasters, and fellow critics. Two fine gentlemen of strong opinions that I've conversed with and debated often are Gabriel Green and James Hamrick, the creators and hosts of the "Underrated Podcast." Their aim is field listener and guest selections of films that fit the underrated billing reflected either by low box office results or low critical review aggregate scores.
When I was asked to join them, I went back through by year-end "Best of..." lists for the Top 10-20 film that had the lowest Rotten Tomatoes score in the seven years of the site. The dubious and underserving winner was Ben Stiller's directorial and acting effort of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty from 2012 (my full review) and its 50% score on RT. It's a film Gabriel, James, and I all really appreciate and that love came out in a spirited and engaging podcast. Give it a download and a listen! Give Gabriel and James a "like" or a "follow" on Facebook or Twitter!
